comments he made this week. but, first, how the parents of the coaches, harbaugh and particular because, are reacting. katie marzullo is in new orleans live at the convention center. >> good morning, eric. does anyone not love the harbaughs at this point? they are so funny and they seem so sincere, they are playing along with all this hype and they are really just a charming family, everyone wants to talk to them about how they feel about their son coaching the super bowl football team and when they talk to the media yesterday it was standing room only. jack and jackie harbaugh have been married for 51 years and you can tell they are still very much in love with each other and very proud of their sons being the coaches of the super bowl team this year. here is how they explain it. >> they will ask how we feel on this historic event. jackie, who has it better than us? nobody! >> loose lips sink ships. they both have subscribed to that philosophy. so no one talks to anyone. >> am i talking to much? >> we are so excited for john and jim to be in this situation. >> there will be one winner
